Seven parishes, Pennfield, Saint Andrews, Saint David, Saint George, Saint Patrick, Saint Stephen and West Isles were created in 1786. Campobello and Grand Manan were created from West Isles in 1803 and 1816 respectively. In 1823, Saint James was created from Saint Stephen. Dumbarton was created from Saint Patrick in 1856, and Lepreau was divided from Pennfield in 1859. Clarendon was set off from Pennfield and Lepreau in 1869.
